Fortnite stutters and frames dip a lot, Please Help.

Just recently my Fortnite game has dipping frames and stuttering a lot. I usually average 75-110 FPS, but now I average 30-80 FPS. My game is always dipping from 110 to 5 FPS, I know it couldn't be my PC since I have a pretty decent build. Here are my specs.
• GTX 1050 2GB
• INTEL 3.70 GHz CORE i3-6100 PROCESSOR
• 8 GB OF RAM
• WD BLUE 1TB HARD DRIVE
• 500W POWER SUPPLY

Thank you for taking your time to read and respond to this, Have a blessed day! Happy

I have to disagree.

The 1050 2GB is below my recommended 1050 Ti. You only have an i3 as well.

You have to pull back all the settings to the bottom when you go with less a machine than folk recommend.

Ive done that, the thing is I used to be able to run fortnite with no problem but these past 2 weeks my frames have been dipping. Even on the lowest possible settings, All buildings take forever to render and once they're rendered I have no problem running the game.

Then you have to see what changed.

Remember I don't consider this rig acceptable to gamers because it tends to be an unreliable performer. The gamer will tweak and get it working then something happens. There's no spare oomph here.

Be sure you are not allowing Microsoft to update drivers. Then go get DDU (what and how is on the web) to remove all video drivers then install the version you found to work.

Do not load Norton or such because you don't have the spare power.

Be sure to disable update sharing. Read https://www.howtogeek.com/224981/how-to-stop-windows-10-from-uploading-updates-to-other-pcs-over-the-internet/

Your HDD must be in perfect health. If you can't tell, then supply a Web Speccy report.
